If its just the longblock without the tranny or anything I wouldn't mind. I'm just curious about the engine's lower end, how many miles are on it, if it made any ugly noises when it ran or had any oil pressure issues. As I said above as long as it would be worth rebuilding and isn't totally shot lol.
I also will have to ask the Scirocco crowd about it to make sure I can get what I need to mount that lower end in properly and be sure its the right engine in the first place.
I guess if it does work out my only question is if the engine would fit in the trunk of my mercury sable and I could get it home in that.
Anyway I'm off to bed, night guys.
well i can tell you that the guy that owned it before it sat at the shop had a engine fire in it. i guess the secondary air fuel injection line or something in that lines ruptured. but he took it to my uncles shop and had the work done to it and ran into a snag on finding that line.
so he just gave my uncle the title cause the work was done but not complete.
i've personally looked in the engine bay and theres no sign of any fire.
but i'll find out how many miles-if they know cause i think the odometer stopped working and how much he'd want for the long block. but i think it'd be worth rebuilding.
im sure it prob wont be much if he's willing to sell
oh and yeah the engine will fit in the trunk. its a tiny little thing. i could lift it my self when i was 17 and 40lbs lighter
